Ultimate Peapod 


About 1984 I bought an Ultimate Peapod tent to use as I camped all over The Lake District. 

 

I used it extensively until about 1991.

It then went into the loft…

I used it once in 2009 on a Skye trip…apart from a few blemishes it was as good as new.

I’m off to Skye soon so thought I’d best check it out.

I pitched it on Sunday 5th April 2015….remarkably after  31 years it appears to function as new. (Although I’ve not checked its waterproofness)!

 

 

I think it cost about £100 at the time, when I was on about £28 per week. So very expensive. Looking back….best £100 I ever spent. Used to ‘Wild Camp’ before it was ‘fashionable’ and was just called ‘Camping’…

  1. I have one still. I bought it when they came out – possibly 1981? They were so new that mine came without the embroidered badge, which Ultimate sent me a few weeks later. I must confess to having had the groundsheet replaced around 1990. It has served me well on and off over the years.
